Veritas Scraping / Scraper Plane Review By: I.Ball
Plane Type: Scraping / Scraper
This Veritas Scraping Plane review is about the scraping plane
made by Veritas Tools of Canada. This plane is also referred to as the
Veritas Scraper Plane.
The Veritas Scraping Plane is a 9 1/2" long scraper plane with a large sole surface area to help ensure a flat surface is acheived.
The Veritas scraper plane has a stress-relieved ductile cast-iron body which is fitted with an adjustable frog, a hardwood handle, hardwood front knob and a 0.055" thick high-carbon steel blade.
The blade as standard is 2 7/8" (73mm) wide with a 45 degree cutting edge.
Many users like rounding the edges of the scraper blade as this aids
in helping prevent grooves/ridges in the piece of timber being worked
which otherwise may be caused by the blade corners.
There are two optional additional Veritas scraper blades available, one is a 1/8" (0.125") thick A2 tool steel blade and the other is a 1/8" (0.125") thick A2 tool steel toothed blade; the toothing is a set of v-pointed teeth set at 25tpi (teeth per inch).
The thicker scraper blade is better suited to more challenging wood grains.
All blades are hardened to RC48-51.
The adjustable frog mechanism allows the blade to be set at a chosen angle between 0 - 25 degrees.
To increase the depth of cut you simiply use the mechanism to tilt the
blade further and further forward.
This plane weighs 4lb.
The Veritas Scraping Plane in made in Canada by Veritas Tools (unless the box says otherwise).
The Veritas Scraping Plane appears to have heavy influences from the old Stanley 112 Scraper Plane.
